RAIN: A history for stormy times
Rain connects us in all sorts of ways – as profound as prayer and art, as practical as economics, as genuine as an exchange between strangers on a stormy day. It plays a key role in civilization, religion, and art. It also allows us to talk about climate change as conversation not confrontation.
